    The Test of Terrain: The Impact of Stability Operations Upon the Armed Forces

    The Test of Terrain: The Impact of Stability Operations Upon the Armed Forces Dr Douglas V Johnson II Colloquium Brief by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, Centre d’Etudes en Sciences Sociales de la Défense, Royal United Services Institute, the Association of the United States Army, the Förderkreis Deutsches Heer, the Heritage Foundation, and the United States Embassy, Paris "Peace operations and their associated stability undertakings have a very long history, but relatively little attention has been paid to the impact these have had on military organizations. Obviously the more such operations a military force is engaged in, the greater effectiveness one would expect, but that effect seems to run from institutional ad hocery to formalization in doctrine and established policies. Further, as the conditions under examination generally follow conflict operations of one sort or another, a period of transition always occurs. In some national security establishments, mechanisms exist to make the Conference Brief Strategic Studies Institute transition relatively easy; in others they do not, and the transition becomes more difficult."

    U.S.-India Security Ties Mr Brian Shoup Colloquium Brief by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, Indiana University "India, as an emerging global power, increasingly is focused on issues that transcend the traditional South Asian region.
